Team manager - Complex Emotional Difficulties Team
We have this exciting new Team Manager opportunity in our Complex Emotional Difficulties Team.
The Complex Emotional Difficulties Team (CEDT) are well-established and respected, with a history of developing innovative models of care.
The team consists of people who have a real passion for their work, dedication to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients, and a respect for each other's skills. As well as therapists (from all core professions) and psychologists, we have an advanced expert-by -experience development lead, peer support workers and are recruiting an occupational therapist.
Main duties of the job
With the community transformation now well underway, there is so much development and innovation going on in Cornwall and within the Complex Emotional Difficulties Team (CEDT) right now.
To date we have focussed on the development and delivery of evidence-based therapies.
In addition we are now focussing on the development of our expert by experience workforce, delivery of peer-support groups, and how we offer a range of support across the health and social care community ('the universal offer').
We also need to plan training, supervision, consultation and support for our Trust and friends and colleagues in primary care and across the voluntary sector.
The Team Manager will be responsible for the day to day management of the team and will work closely with the Operational Manager and Professional leads on transformation and development of the service.
We are looking for a team manager who is able to lead compassionately working collaboratively with the multi-disciplinary team, to ensure that they are fully supported to provide needs led care and treatment for our service users.
We're an NHS community and mental health provider Trust based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We deliver community and hospital-based care to improve people's physical and mental health. We also provide specialist support to people with dementia or a learning disability.
We are a people organisation and people matter to us. As part of the team, you'll help support the health and wellbeing of the people who live and visit this beautiful part of the UK.
Over 4,000 people make up the Trust. This includes doctors, nurses, therapists, plus admin and support staff.
We work in people's homes, in community clinics and bases. Some staff work from one of our 13 community hospitals. Our aspiration is to have great people, provide great care, be a great place to work and a great partner.
Approximately 568,000 people live here. A third of people who live in Cornwall are supported by acute hospital services in Devon. As a result, we also work closely with our partners in Devon. In the summer, and during other holidays lots of people choose to visit the area. This increases the numbers of people who use our services.
